All Articles: Sniper Elite III
The second week of March steps up the number of new releases considerably from last week’s solitary new game. Here’s what gamers will be able to discover on store shelves this week:
- Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea (PS3), the latest Atelier RPG from Koei Tecmo and Gust.
- Code Name: STEAM (3DS), Nintendo’s portable strategy game that features a team of superheroes assembled by Abe Lincoln himself.
- DMC: Devil May Cry – Definitive Edition (PS4, Xbox One), an enhanced re-release of the rather ignored most recent entry in the Devil May Cry series.
- Sniper Elite III: Ultimate Edition (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360), an enhanced re-release of Rebellion’s sniper sequel.
A few additional new releases from this week can be found after the break. (more…)
In previous years, the best-sellers chart for the month of July would normally be dominated by the latest entry in the NCAA Football series. But EA Sports canceled the series last Fall, so a new emperor is sitting upon the July Throne in 2014. Or rather, an emperor we’ve seen before in a spiffy new set of clothes.
This is a roundabout way of saying that the Remastered re-release of Sony’s The Last of Us (combined with more sales on the PS3) pushed the game to the top of the best-sellers chart. July was a pretty sparse month as far as new releases go, but 505’s Sniper Elite III also cracked the top ten. It was number eight… with a bullet.
You can check out July’s complete top ten list (which includes May releases Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 hanging tough in the top five) after the break. (more…)
Today’s additions to the Xbox Live Game Store should look very familiar to anyone who checked in with this week’s PlayStation Store update yesterday.

Both games are available for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. And you can more information on both after the break. (more…)
Four big new games headline this week’s PlayStation Store update:
- Sniper Elite III is the latest game in the popular sniper series set during World War II is also the first available for the PS4. And yes, I’m fairly certain you can snipe Hitler. Sniper Elite III has also been released for the PS3.
- Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is an enhanced and updated version of the lucha libre-themed platformer, now available for the PS4.
- Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn (PS3) is a Dynasty Warriors game that features characters from several different Gundam anime series.
